Samsung Gear™ 2 Neo Charcoal Black

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 95 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for the money I have had the gear 2 neo for over a year now, and I have really injoyed my time with it. I like that you can get third party apps for texting and emailing. Although I rated features 1 star lower than the rest, because the apps just aren't there there is maybe 100 to 180 apps, that have at least 3.5 star. Now not all the time on this app store can you go buy rating, because the texting that you can use, is called flesky and it has a lower rating but it is good. The speaker and mic on this thing is great the speaker, is loud enough so you can hear a person speaking well you are In the car, or walking down the street. But for music playing the speaker just isn't loud enough, well I am jogging I like louder music than talking, all I do is use a Bluetooth headset witch the gear 2 neo has a setting for, so it is good. I love the sleep app it seems to track sleep well. Bluetooth conection is great it is pretty 20 to 30 feet depending on what is in its way. For reading my emails this is great. When I have a minute I use the flesky app to text or if it has to be quick you can use the preloaded text templates (customizable). In the end it I'd great get you will like it. February 20, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesn't sync to s health I was so excited to upgrade from a Fitbit to a gear watch. But once I realized I couldn't sync to s health the watch is useless to me. Why would you state that the watch syncs to ALL Samsung devices when it obviously doesn't? I feel that my purchase was a waste of money. I also know that you are aware that it is not syncing with note 3 so why not fix the problem? I will be going back to Fitbit, at least it functions the way they say it does. Very disappointed with you Samsung. January 9, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Some questions Overall, this watch really makes me wonder what a Tizen phone could be. Samsung hit the nail on the head by not turning this into a phone replacement. A Smartwatch should ultimately be simply a second screen to the phone that can do some basic tasks (text, call, calendar, etc). I don't want to have mobile data on my watch. A screen that size is only good for notifications anyway. Wouldn't mind seeing the next version become more ergonomic like the Galaxy S. As to questions, here's one: why the cheap design? Seriously, the difference between the Neo and standard Gear 2 is only the camera, why turn the Neo into a plastic toy looking device? The camera I can see costing the $100 difference, but not the metal trim. Another: why is the connection so shaky? My Galaxy S5 routinely fails to recognize the watch being in proximity (for lock screen). Final: Where are the wrist bands? It was touted as one aspect of customization. Yet, you can't find replacement bands anywhere. February 15, 2015
